HOW TO HAVE FRIENDS

MAY 24, Proverbs 18:24 

 

Do you like to have many friends? Friends gladden our hearts and everywhere we go is a much friendlier place if we have somebody to talk to and play with. School becomes a happy place when you think of your friends there. Church is a great place too when you have many good friends there.

 

The secret of having many friends is to be friendly yourself. You must be willing to greet, welcome and talk to others first. Go up to someone new and smile and make him or her feel comfortable and at home. Every child of God must be friendly. We want as many people as possible to know Jesus. We are so glad we belong to Jesus and we want others to be saved.

 

Complete the words of this famous hymn:
What a friend we have in __________ . All our __________ and griefs to bear, What a privilege to carry,
Everything to God in __________ .


Thought: The secret of having friends is to be friendly.

Prayer: Thank you, Heavenly Father for the many friends You have given me. Help me to treasure them, and be a good friend to them. In Jesus’ name, amen.
